The 11 savvy stylists at Salon Gity style, strengthen, and straighten locks with Paul Mitchell and Coppola products. Tress technicians spend about 45 minutes on each haircut, snipping head nests to client specifications and yielding styles more flattering than written compliments from Oprah. During keratin blowouts, high-end Coppola products seal strands with a protein-rich complex that protects follicle foundations from pollution and reduces frizz. Stylists spend two to three hours administering each root-bolstering treatment, after which hair hangs straighter, resists breaking, and deflects malignant lasers fired from outer space. Salon Gity cultivates an online gallery of its best styling work, which earned the store the title of Best Houston Beauty Store in 2005 on Citysearch.
